I don't know if the line up for Factory is fully decided yet, if it's all gonna be dwarves with flamethrowers and mechs or what, but otherwise giant beetles or spiders or insects could be interesting or perhaps as neutral creatures.

1. One cannot replace what was never introduced or even planned to be. Forge is neither of those. That being said, yes - Factory is meant to leverage certain elements and ideas that could be paramount to the concept of Forge. We aren't talking about visuals but about being the most technologically advanced town of all (for Forge, that was the entire idea; for Factory, it is one of many). Still, it could be argued that Factory is going to take over this niche.
Moreover, select homages to the original Forge might yet happen not only within Factory as a town, but also other future HotA content, including Factory campaigns.
2. This is a common misconception. Forge never was announced as a town in HotA or even planned down to any kind of a roadmap. All Forge-related activity was limited to sporadic individual efforts of some crew members dating back to the period from 2011 to 2013, taken completely at their own behest. Some of those materials were published by their creators, like the town screen by Don_ko, but no further developments have happened on that front since.
Thus, speaking about changed plans would be a mistake. Factory is new plans, not a replacement of old ones.



Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. I'm kinda confused now, I must say, as I thought Forge was actually being developed by the (whole) team for all these years. I may need to read some older posts again when I have time. Unexpecting, but nevertheless not bad news by any means.

I do not understand why publish the teaser if the release is scheduled for 2020, however we wait


Hota crew is often criticized for not being open about their plans. Now they're actually revealing something, but criticised for telling too early.

Even big movie teasers are revealed an year before you can actually watch them. Hota tries to push out a new patch each year, so it only makes sense that they're revealing their plans now, as their patch last year was mostly about "just fixing bugs."

About the installation process of HotA 1.5.4 + HD mod RC43

Why is the installer not recognizing the installation path of my Gog Galaxy's clean installation of HoMM III Complete?

And, why is it forcing the installation on the root directory of my C drive?

Now, I have to install the HD mod by herself, just like last year.


____________
Now, all 7 titles can be played on Windows 10 Home/Pro Editions. Thanks to the good ole' Gog.com people, all the series can be played on any decent multi-core PC.

Sphinx

Just throwing in my 5 cents.. I would love to see again Sphinx on map just like in HOMAM 2 (think also WoG adopted it).

1) Will there be any high tier shooter in Factory (6 or 7)
2) What will be your strategy of promotion? Will we see series of posts which will explain and show next ascpects of the townn? Or going dark till premire.
3) Will Wastelands Terrein be released before Factory town?
4) Will Factory bring new machanics into gameplay? By that I mean Like Cove and bad luck effect.
5) Why Factory belong to neutral alignment? I hoped for evil faction - wasteland terrein, forge successor, advanced technology concept and elements of wild west outlaw. It would also have way bigger potential to tell interesting story in campaings.

Only if you play with tournament rules on.

Quote:
- DD/TP/Fly cannot be used on maps smaller than L
- DD cannot be used more than once on L and XL maps. On XL+U maps and bigger it can be used twice if a hero has Expert Air Magic and once otherwise

I have a question to HotA team. Have you ever thought about adding water terrain creature banks? For example - Sunken Temple where you fight Fangarms for an advanced level skill, Pirate's Galeon where you fight Cove units for gold and artifacts, or even a Haunted Lightouse that reveals part of the map after you defeat Ghosts and Spectral Dragons?

They added a few, you can find them here under "sea objects" http://h3hota.com/en/documentation

They added buildings like "Beholders' Sanctuary", "Temple of the Sea" (water equivalent of Dragon Utopia) or "Pirate Cavern".

Displaying that information in-game would take little effort (I presume) while making the game much more player-friendly.

I mean, right-clicking the Tournament rules checkbox...



... would display this:

I'm wondering about new heroes for Factory. So far it was revealed 2 male: Bertram and Todd.
I hope that female heroes will be powerful (means playable) and also charismatic e.g. these three from the Cove are real badass : Cassopeia, Miriam and Anabel.




Is there any chance to reveal some female hero ?
